First of all – I want to thank you for taking the time to learn about Mad Rabbit Distillery and the delicious spirits that we offer.
I would like to take a minute to share with you something that we believe is an important part to the transparency of the Craft Spirits movement. Some of you may already be aware that many of the spirits that you enjoy are actually produced in a large factory in the mid-west. In fact, many of the spirits that I have enjoyed over the years were sold by “craft-distilleries” but the spirits were never produced by them. That being said, they were (and still are) some of my favorites because they are fantastic, quality spirits! What can be “wrong” with this picture is that many claim to have been made by the distillery whose name is on the bottle – when in fact they may have only bottled the spirit (if even that) and marketed it as something like “hand-crafted” or “hand-made”.
At Mad Rabbit Distillery we want you to know exactly what you are buying and why. Mad Rabbit Distillery is in fact a “Grain-to-Glass” distillery. This means that we can (and do) create spirits from scratch! We begin by sourcing the best possible – organic – non-GMO corn, from a local Colorado producer. We mill the corn; add some barley, wheat and other ingredients to make our delicious Bourbon Whiskey. The down side to making whiskey from scratch is that it takes a minimum of 2 years to mature in the barrels before we can even consider bottling and selling it to you. Taking that into consideration, we chose several years ago to partner with another craft distillery (that has been producing Bourbon for a much longer time than us) – and purchase “our” recipe of bourbon from them until our “scratch” bourbon is matured in our new oak barrels. This is an amazing bourbon which has already aged and is ready to bottle. For clarification, it is not “bulk-produced” at a giant ethanol plant in the mid-west, and is wonderfully smooth and delicious.
Our promise to you is to always be honest - not only our customers but to ourselves and say directly on our bottles whether we distilled, produced and /or bottled our spirits for your enjoyment or that it was distilled somewhere else. If the spirit was distilled somewhere else, you have our guaranty that it is the most delicious, quality spirit that we can put into one of our Bravo Zulu bottles. We take the time to source, filter, proof, and bottle every drop that makes it into your store, bar, restaurant or home.
We will always provide you with this level of transparency; because everyone deserves to know that what they are purchasing is not only the best product that you can buy, but the truth about where it came from.
